Founders + Friends

With Hollyhock Leadership Institute

July 27 - 31, 2022

We invite you to join us on the shores of the Salish Sea as we mark 40 years of Sparking Change at Hollyhock. 

This year marks 40 years of sparks that have catalyzed change at Hollyhock. Over the course of 5 days, we will be celebrating this milestone with a mix of culture, dialogue and fun activities. 

As the sun sets on the final day of the festivities, we will culminate with a multigenerational gathering, the Founders + Friends Soiree, kindly hosted by Victoria and Ian Watson. 

There is no registration fee for this event but participants are invited to express their support at the Saturday evening fundraising party.

Connect over activities, conversations, drinks and appetizers followed by exceptional entertainment. There will be an invitation to help support Hollyhock’s work to build a fair just and inclusive future. Donating is optional. 

Sing, dance, and join the festivities at our annual Founders + Friends Soiree on July 30, 2022. 

What really touched my soul was the people. I had the unique honour of hearing and feeling the powerful words of the founders and friends and leaders of Hollyhock, who spoke to me in poetry and story about the creation of this powerful vortex on our planet of the mission of this convening space, and of the gift that it is for us all to be partners in supporting it. Thank you Hollyhock founders for opening my heart and mind and for the opportunity to be a part of supporting your vitality for the renewal of us all. – Joshua S. Fouts, Executive Director, Bioneers; Founders + Friends Attendee

Our family has made Founders + Friends a part of our yearly summer schedule. We love the natural beauty of Cortes Island, engaging with the always-inspirational community that gathers at this event, and contributing to the future of Hollyhock; a place that has deeply nourished us both professionally and personally. – Chloe Gow-Jarrett, 3Fold Partners, Founders + Friends Attendee
